Hard disk failed, need to get information off it so I can put it on a new one
I have had the misfortune of having a hard disk fail to my new ASUS Essentio. I'm going to have to replace the hard disk, but since the computer is only a month old I haven't had a chance to back up the information on this hard disk, this hard disk also has windows 7 on it and everything else, I have some things of MAJOR importance on there, how do I get the information off of there and get it onto the new hard disk when I change them. I also still have a best buy warranty but I have never dealt with them besides buying products, do you think I should contact them and see what they can do for me?, would they replace the hard drive and get the data onto it for me or should I just do it all myself? I also heard that installing linux can void your warranty but I have it installed through a wubi installer would that do anything to void it?
